Band Spotlight: Battlecross

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Thursday, December 17, 2015 at 6:17 PM (PST)


Are Battlecross the hardest working blokes in metal? In recent years they have certainly seemed like it. The thrashers released their best album yet Rise To Power in 2015 and were a constant presence on big tours, connecting to fans and in online discussions. This band already has the potential to be one of the next generation of thrash greats if they stay the course. We hope they continue their rise. They prove that you can’t do this if you are bound by fear! Get out there and hustle! \m/

The record label that has brought you such awesomeness as Gwar, Amon Amarth, Cannibal Corpse, and of course the Goo-Goo Dolls, is hosting a free show to celebrate it’s 30th Anniversary.  The event is being held Saturday September 15, 2012 at The Glass House in Pomona, CA and basically you need to RSVP for the event by clicking here, and then you need to make sure to get there super early since admission is limited to capacity.  If you make it in you’ll get to see Six Feet Under, Cattle Decapitation, Battlecross, Gypsyhawk, and Pilgrim for the awesome price of free.

It’s been a long road for Metal Blade and a lot of their sucess has been attributed to working with just about any band that they like, no matter what they sound like.  Founder Brian Slagel has been quoted as saying:

“To this day if I really like a band and if the staff really like it then no matter what they sound like we want to work with them, I’ve always liked a wide variety of sounds in metal, which I think is reflected in our roster, and I’ve never gotten into trying to sign a lot of bands that sound the same. I would personally rather find something that nobody else has heard of before, something that’s really different from what’s going on, and put that out.”

“We’ve got food on this tour and everything, I might actually be able to gain a pound on this tour because I’m skinny as shit! But in all seriousness, it’s an extreme honor to be performing on the same stage with these bands. We never would have imagined playing these types of shows. It’s a true honor to be performing with the big dogs.”
